2005 I almost bought one of these Paul smart commemorative ss1000.
Bought a Bonneville instead
The sales manager at the duck dealer was an annoying snob . At the time it was BMW/Ducati / Gilroy
The Triumph salesman was an older down to earth viet vet whom rode a boss hoss!
The asking prices on Paul Smart bikes these days are 25k and up .
Oh well. No regrets.
The owner of my local Duc shop owns a 900SS just like that blue/silver example. It's beautiful and has a purposeful and elegant stance. That said, the 2006 Paul Smart replica Sport Classic 1000DS had far more performance in its bulkier (some might charitably say 'brawnier') package. Both look like torture racks to ride.
Maybe they are torture racks. Lol.
I will never know. A friend of mine sold a SS yellow one last year. I have no idea what he got for it. He had it for decades. But being a very large guy he didn’t ride it in recent times.
